AMV Pimpage *Spoilers*  
I just made a new AMV. I'm actually rediculously proud of it. It has to be the best work I've ever done, and done on Ulead Video Studio 8SE, which kinda sucks (but it's all I have right now).

TouTube kills, but you can find it here: Nothing I Won't Give

Of course, if you want to download it, you can do that here: YouSendIt Link

The song is titled "Nothing I Won't Give", and sung by Vic Mignogna.

Erk: I shoulda added there are spoilers for the end of the series and teensy spoilers for the movie. Sorry!

Just a forewarning, you'll need hankies available while watching. ;-)

That was really well done. ^^ Thanks.

Thanks. It sometimes pays to be an anal-retentive-obsessive-compulsive-perfectionist. ^^;;

That was wonderfully put together! Ive been listening to that song a lot in the past couple of days- I really love it! It works really well with all your clips. And I like how it has few movie clips, just because I think movie-centric FMVs get a little repetative :3

Well done!
c_b_syndromec_b_syndrome on May 25th, 2006 12:14 am (UTC)
Thank you! I agree that the movie-centric can be overdone. It seems sometimes it's all the same clips, too. I just picked clips that seemed to fit, regardless, though. ;)

Wow, this is really impressive. Great job!!!

Thanks! :D

*wibbles*

oooh. I love the old movie effect, and how the screen jumps slightly, and I looooooove the timing of the pictures flashing when Ed sees the 'truth'.

The timing overall is really well done, and I love the transitions. And the white framing bits you did.

*flail* The best part is the "my brother" line.

(upon further inspection, I've discovered some REALLY good, probably unintentional timing. :D)

Concrit of you don't mind:

The transition to the glowing blue alchemy circles seems a bit early. After watching it a few times, it makes sense the way it was done, though. ^^
c_b_syndromec_b_syndrome on May 25th, 2006 01:01 am (UTC)
Hey, concrit away! I live for that kinda thing (you've read BoP, and seen nebroadwe's comments, so you know.

Actually the timing on that was different at one point, but the clips I had for the second chorus were better for the third, and vice-versa, so I moved them around.

*facepalms* That was FUUUUUN! Needless to say, for some bizarre reason, it shifted the timing on that ONE clip at the begining. Go figure. However, I really liked the way it ended up at that one point anyway, because that fade-to-black made it a little more significant.

Gotta love the serendipidous!

That was awesome. x3 I liked the old footage effect. <33

(Would you mind directing me to where you got the song? I've never heard it before. ^^ )

very good! :)

show vic yet? i'm sure he'd like it, hun.

*zoom*

Actually, I sent HIM the download link first. Unfortunately, I think that because he has a Mac and I made this on a PC it was incompatable. I even tried to reformat it to QuickTime, but my program crashed at 99% each time (and I tried several times). I finally had to just upload it to YouTube and hope he gets a chance to see it later (and yes, I sent him the link).

I suppose this wouldn't be a problem if I had a -good- program, like Premier Pro! (I am SO taking the classes to become Adobe Certified, darnit!)

wah it's so gorgeous and the timing's really well done...!! the old footage effects that you did were really sweet ^^! All the little touches really showed so much of the effort I know you put into it ♥!
c_b_syndromec_b_syndrome on May 25th, 2006 01:52 am (UTC)
Thanks! :D

*blows hankie* That was all around BEAUTIFUL! I first heard the song on the Risembool Rangers site. Vic has such a wonderful voice! I'm so glad someone made an AMV to it because it was just begging to be done...and so well might i add. What program did you use?
c_b_syndromec_b_syndrome on May 25th, 2006 01:51 am (UTC)
A combination of Ulead Video Studio 8SE (came bundled with my DVD burner), and Cool Edit Pro for the timing on the music.

No SFX, just stock transitions and filters, and adjusting playback speed to make the clip I used fit.

I don't recommend Ulead, to be honest. It's a little better than Windows Movie Maker (in that I can grab a clip by a single frame, which WMM doesn't do). It's cantankerous, RAM-hogging, and not very flexable. It was really made just for people who want to put together home movies, more than anything.

I made that program scream in agony and beg for mercy with the contortions I put it through, though *grins evilly*

That was so awsome. Great job XD
You beat me to it. I'm going to make an amv to this song to and post it. But oh well ^_^
c_b_syndromec_b_syndrome on May 25th, 2006 05:03 am (UTC)
So make it! ^^;; Just because one person did, doesn't mean someone else can't. After all, look at how many versions of "Triangle Man" are out there for FMA AMVs? XD *is guilty of adding to the copious numbers*
